How to get cash for old cars?

As we mentioned above, the most efficient way of getting cash for old cars is by selling to a car buyer service. The main advantage of this method is that you don’t have to worry about your car’s condition and spend money on it. Your car will be accepted as it is. Another advantage is that you don’t need to drive your car to the scrap yard. It will be collected by our driver and you will also be assisted with the paperwork.

All valuables should be removed from the car before it is sold or scrapped – this includes a navigation device or an expensive radio. Tires in good condition usually find a buyer. Existing tools – for example, wheel spider and jack can be kept by you as well.
